Where to plug the angel eyes on Depo's?
 
Hi, I just received my Depo headlights with chromium angel eyes, and I just don't know how to make the angel eyes work..

On the back of the light, there's the usual 2 big wires for each bulb, and one little simple grey wire. Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

you should have a plug and play connector which has 4 pins to which u connect the wires. the angel eye wire is white. power is red. ground is black. and green i forgot. also in order to make the angel eyes work u need to splice them into the corner lights so they get power

look, I took a quick snapshot, hope you can see..

I think all the wires are already connected as they should, I just need to plug the grey one in a corner light, but I really don't see how I can do that..

take a picture of the back of the lights, where the oval is with the 4 prongs coming out

also where did u get these from, and were the angel eyes pre installed?

ok so ur pretty much set. so teh white and black connectors plug into the existing ones, just match up the grooves to see what goes where. that white wire you splice into the corner light to give the AE's power.

uncle ben 02-20-2008 10:44 AM

what do you mean by "splicing"? (I'm french))
I've looked into the corner lights, and there's nowhere I can plug it..

^^ you need to strip a portion of the white wire and strip a portion of your corner lights wire, and attach ("splice") them together so that the white wire get's power from that, not the plug

uncle ben 02-20-2008 11:25 AM

thing that bugs me is that it's a simple wire, not a dual with positive and negative.

uncle ben 02-20-2008 02:09 PM

anyone have a picture of the AE connection to the corner light?

the ground is common in the headlight.....dont worry about the ground. when you plug the connectors in...you'll have a ground.

uncle ben 02-20-2008 05:23 PM

so the current dosen't need to go in the AE one way and go out the other?
(like a normal home lamp)

it's a single core electric wire..

That's right. There will be 3 wires going to the corner. A ground, power for the corner light, and power for the signal light. You want to tap into the power for the corners. It will supply constant power to the AEs while your lights are on. If you tap into the wrong one, they will blink along with your flashers.

The AE is already grounded, just need to give it power now. You get the power from the side blinker wires

Driver Side Blinker = Purple
Passager Side Blinker= Yellow

Heres a pic I stole to show you:
In this pic the red wire is the AE power
